Learning Objectives
In this session, the tax experts will:

  1. Briefly outline the new federal tax changes as they relate to medical corporations
  2. Discuss potential tax strategies to reduce tax burden in relation to these new tax changes, using case studies and practice/specific advice geared to early career physicians who have more debt than savings

LeadFM Leadership Development Course: Primary Care Transformation

Primary Care Transformation: How to Tackle Sticky Situations We Were Never Taught to Address

October 20, 0800-1130
Brad Bahler, Nadine Letwin

Are you interested in leadership development?

Join Drs. Brad Bahler and Nadine Letwin as they present a half-day session before the PEIP Conference on October 20th. Their session, “Primary Care Transformation: How to Tackle Sticky Situations We Were Never Taught to Address will explore the “system transformation” element of the LEADS Framework.

In health care, we all eventually come face to face with problems outside our specific locus of control. These “system” problems in health care pose significant challenges to patients and primary care providers alike.

We will examine what is meant by systems transformation, expose participants to challenges that are rooted in our traditional mindset, and consider new approaches to problems we were never taught to solve. This session is part of the LeadFM Leadership Program.

There are only 30 spots available in this workshop, so head over here for more information or register for the session here.
